The PJ O’Brien Band will headline Blues on the Mountain on Saturday, November 8, at Mangrove Mountain Hall.
PJ O’Brien and his band have been performing all over Australia as well as overseas. The PJ O’Brien Band has won a plethora of awards including Best Blues Artist at the MusicOz Awards, Song of the Year and Group of the Year at the Australian Blues Music (Chain) Awards, as well as representing Australia at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis. Blues on the Mountain organiser Mr Ryan Howard said it is really exciting to have such a highly acclaimed and internationally recognised act as The PJ O’Brien Band coming to perform at our Blues on the Mountain event. The event will also see the return of Home Grown Acoustic Award winners, Grizzlee Train. The duo has had a busy year performing a host of shows along with supporting bands such as The Crooked Fiddle Band and The Angels. Grizzlee Train is also currently in the process of releasing their debut EP and hope to have copies available on the night. “We have had so many requests for Grizzlee Train since they performed at our last Ball in the Hall event in May that we just had to invite them back to perform at Blues on the Mountain, and luckily for us they said yes,” said Mr Howard. There will also be a charity auction on the night with signed memorabilia up for grabs with all proceeds going to the Save Fairview Homestead Trust, which aims to restore one of the area’s oldest early settler buildings to its former glory.
